Policies & Waivers

Closed Sessions

I understand that registration for the closed sessions held on March 6 – 7, 2024 at MCBH does not guarantee attendance at the closed sessions. It is the responsibility of the attendee to submit their clearance using the instructions found on the Security Clearance page prior to the cutoff date. Attendance to these sessions is not guaranteed until clearances are received, verified and confirmed by Kratos and may be limited due to venue capacities. Please be advised should an attendee be denied entry to the closed session for any reason, it does not entitle them to a refund of the conference registration fee.

Harassment includes offensive gestures and verbal comments, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, inappropriate photography and recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriately physical contact, and unwelcome attention. Participants requested to cease harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately, and failure will serve as grounds of revoking access to the NDIA, NTSA or WID event.
